Product Description
Eastman™ SAIB-100 (sucrose acetate isobutyrate) is an odorless and tasteless, thermally stable, viscous liquid. It has very light color (less than 1, Gardner color scale). It is produced by the controlled esterification of sucrose, a natural sugar, with acetic and isobutyric anhydrides. The electrical properties of Eastman™ SAIB are equal to or better than those of many widely-used plasticizers and it possesses an especially high volume resistivity. It also has good thermal hydrolytic stability making it useful in surface coatings and electrical insulation.
